I wanna talk to the black men in here, you know what I mean? Black men in here that are coming up in the hood, coming up in the struggle: We're killing each other, dawg. You feel me? You know? And it's about nothing, it's about nothing. Nothing.
7 Mile is like an Ave. Back in the days it was poppin' in the summer time.
I just don't want to be rapping forever. I love it, but sometimes you got goals for yourself.
I don't actually sit down and write, but I just have a lot of different ideas about films and making movies.
Working with 50 Cent was great, you know what Im saying? It was just great to work with 50 Cent.
But since I am in the music industry, I don't want anyone to download music, not on September 9th.
But working with Dre, I grew up with his music, so I'm still like more a fan.
I get the music, I get the beats. And I go to the studios and write the lyrics.
I just do what I'm here for and that's to make that music.
I was about 11 when my mother brought me this karaoke machine and I was really into it back then, but about 4 or 5 years ago is when I started printing up my own music, going to the studio and doing my own thing.
Let's say I was a plumber, or I worked at a factory, I would download music, you feel what I'm saying?
You know, I'm the 1st black solo MC from Detroit. I didn't do the 50 Cent sales but hey... I got a long career, I'm still young and I'm trying to bring really good music.
I would say old school cats like Redman and Wu-tang. My style is my style, those are just cats that I liked.
Detroit is right now a new Mecca for Hip Hop.
I don't want to be an actor or nothing but if I have to, I'll act if it's the right thing.
